This is one of the most wonderful teas I have ever tasted. It's complex, sweet, and has a hint of apricot to it. I get it with every purchase from Adagio.

While not the most gourmet of teas, this tea is very easy to find at most grocery stores and Starbucks in metropolitan US areas.

Overall it has a good flavor, moderate in intensity, and rarely comes out bitter.

I like to brew this is very warm, but not hot water, for about 2.5-3 minutes.

This is one of my favorites for dinner. I brew it lightly, if it's brewed too strongly you don't get all the flavors. Probably one of the best, mass produced american teas. Hard to find in most stores, comes in both teabag variety and loose leaf. I prefer the loose leaf.

Terrible. The aroma as you start to sip is reminiscent of body odor. The flavor, if you can get past the smell, hints at dirt. Not good at all. I gave the rest of the box away.

This tea is very mild in flavor. I like it because it's pleasant, not at all overpowering even if you leave the tea bag in your cup and doesn't leave an unpleasant aftertaste in your mouth.

Dec. 3rd, 2009

Fascinating, unique. Brews clear green. The aroma is dark and warm, and un-tea-like...it is almost like a good soup, with subtle spices and cooked vegetables.

Following Upton's brewing instructions, the flavor is mellow, smooth, and warm in character, with almost no bitterness...but lacking the crispness I like in ...

I really like this oolong, but its so expensive to me. I have tasted other oolongs that cost less and still taste great. Its a good tea, but not worth 25 dollars for 2 oz.

Nov. 28th, 2009

A rich, full-bodied tea, brews a dark orange color and is fairly bitter. The aroma is fairly complex. There are some pleasant vegetal tones too. Pleasant aftertaste too.

I really like this tea; it's one of the few white peony teas that I've tried that has been bold and full-bodied enough for me. It's almost a li...

I was sad to see this tea removed from Upton's listings, as I enjoyed sampling it. [Update: it seems Upton has added a new lot, and I'm eager to try that one!]

Extremely flavorful and complex, with many different aspects of the aroma: dark, vegetal tones, rich grassy tones similar to a good dragonwell tea, and a hi...

This tea comes in individually wrapped packets, and it keeps for a considerable amount of time. The first box I purchased cost $3.89 for 20 tea bags with 1.48 oz,whereas the second was 1.99 for 16 packets with 1.13 oz. I presume some difference may be attributed to currency fluctuations. Like most oolongs, this has ...

As with Foojoy's China Black Tea, I found this a surprisingly good value. The black tea was wrapped in individual paper packets, whereas the Lunching box has several aluminum sealed packets containing individual bags. This tea has a pleasant aroma and a decent flavor. It compares favorably to many other green teas sol...

This is my favorite tea from Adagio so far. When brewed as recommended this tea is very light with a sweetness and some fruity tones. But I found it too thin this way.

I like brewing it much longer (8+ minutes) and with slightly warmer water (190-ish)...it comes out much stronger and more interesting...more grassy...

Wow. I love the aroma of this tea...it is much more vegetal than most black teas, clean and fresh, and yet warm too. Smooth and yet relatively full-bodied, but thin relative to some breakfast teas. No astringency.

I do notice the peppery tones characteristic of a dian hong. The aroma is pleasingly complex. Ther...

Aroma spicy, unusually vegetal for a tea this dark, and unusually malty for a Darjeeling. Very interesting and complex! Dark liquor and tastes more like other black teas than most Darjeelings; I would not describe it as "golden" or "light". Remarkably bold and full-bodied and yet with little bitterness or astringenc...

Beautifully fragrant leaves and beautifully fragrant brewed tea. Sweet, light, orchid-like floral aroma. Weak flavor, with a very clean taste...sweet with a hint of tanginess and no bitterness. Upon drinking, what seemed like a pleasantly strong aroma becomes too weak.

Adagio recommends brewing 5 minutes with 180...
